## Qinf: A Free Quantum Information Suite for Maxima

2008-10-22

Normal version

I have dropped Mathematica in favor of
MaximaMaxima
some time ago in order to escape from obscure bugs remaining unfixed
and licensing troubles, and have not regretted it since. Now I just
came across Qinf,
which is a free (as in GPLv2) quantum information suite for
Maxima. While the package is still under development it already
contains quite a lot useful functions like partial traces, entropy
calculation, operator expansion. So if you use Qinf instead of another
package relying on a proprietary CAS, you can prevent your code from
being trapped.
